No diving today! Can take our time over breakfast which is just as wonderful as all the other days. I'm addicted to those sugar donuts. I send another e-mail to Chantal, Phuket Scuba Club stating that we will stop by the office on the 20th and then after talking to her and Kevan can decide what days he wants to dive, etc.
|Richard says these could be dive boats on their way to the Similans|
We drive into KHAO LAK TOWN as I want to see about buying some camera memory cards. I brought my Wolverine (portable hard drive just for memory cards) with me but I'm too cautious to delete all my pictures after I've transferred them to the Wolverine. I guess I don't trust that there could be a problem and if the pictures on the Wolverine somehow get erased/deleted, then what do I do?? I stop at a camera store and buy some memory cards 1450 baht. I buy postcards and stamps 120 baht. We check out another dive center that has lots of gear for sale. I buy a dry bag 650 baht for my Lumix camera to protect it from the water when we will go on day trips in Phuket. On the way back to the resort we buy some gas for the car 720 baht.

|Fruit kebabs, sushi, popcorn, chips & dip, bread sticks, veggie sticks, fish puffs. The champagne was very good. There were around 7 small tables, each with all the snack foods on it.|
